Traveling through Rock Tunnel and reaching Lavender Town, it was here he caught a Haunter by complete accident. But this ended up working in his favor later on when it finally evolved into a Gengar. Gengar lightened up Jay’s mood tremendously and was a huge help in keeping look out for any authority figures while Jay did his work. Upon reaching Celadon for a job offer he had been given back in Lavender Town, his first plan of action was to get an apartment in the Southern Part of the city. Feeling kind of lonely in only having a ghost as a friend, Jay ended up buying a Houndour puppy off the slot machine reels. For the first time Jay was finally happy for everything he had accomplished. So he continued working as an artist and secretly tagging at night for 5 years.
The screams and cries of helpless people were drowned out only by the air raid sirens above. Groups of survivors gathered what they could to fend off the infected humans only to be betrayed by their once loyal Pokémon. Jay knew that was always a bad idea. I mean seriously how dumb is it to your companions to be infected with any sort of disease, good or bad? Society is stupid. Jay thought to himself. He pressed onward toward the familiar Lavender town.
Pokémon: Houndour (nicknamed: Blazer)
Pokémon: Gengar (nicknamed: Noxis)
To the West he could see the ruins of Celadon city. A few smoke clouds drifted upwards to the clouds, but otherwise quiet. A few miles to the East is Saffron City. Jay suspected the infection had just hit. He saw only a few survivors here and there fleeing west to Celadon. He wanted to warn them, but would not risk exposing himself. No, Jay thought, I’ll be better off on my own. He raised his hoodie and climbed down the side of the tree he had been holding up in. As Jay reached the bottom, Noxis returned with his news. Up ahead was a Poke center, they were bound to have supplies and also the chance of danger. It was a chance he had to take. Jay summoned his trustee Houndour to his side. “Alright guys, we have to be careful. There might be more of those things in our way and I can’t risk having either of you injured. Let’s go with caution.” The closer they got, the more Jay began to get more nervous. He stood outside the entrance and observed action moving from the front.
A man around his 40’s limped slowly out of the entrance. He bled profusely from his injuries. He was barely hanging on to his life when he caught a glimpse of Jay. “Help… me…” He moaned with the last of his strength before falling over. A few seconds past before what seemed like vines began to slowly drag him inside.
“Son of a,” Jay muttered. “Noxis, go!” Noxis rushed over to the old man and readied a shadow ball. A small explosion of darkness broke the window panes, revealing an infected Tangela. Its vines whipped around in frenzy. Behind the counter the Pokecenter’s Chancey had also been infected and began moving forward, “Blazer! Burn that tangela. Noxis, use get on that chancey.” Blazer set the plant Pokémon on fire. Its unintelligible cries were quickly drowned out. Noxis powered up another shadow ball and let it loose knocking back the infected chancey. This gave Blazer a chance to set it on fire disposing of the threat. The ransacking began. Jay found a few rations and medical supplies stashed away, and unfortunately the now mangled body of the former Nurse.
“Well, it looks like we have a long way to go still. On to Lavender Town.” Jay recalled Blazer and sent Noxis to scout up ahead. The day was just beginning and it looked to be interesting already.
